Beef Tips & Rice

by Robert Spears


1 1/2 lb. Beef Stew Meat cubed
1 lb. mushrooms sliced
1 onion chopped
1 1/2 tsp. of flour
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of pepper
1 garlic powder
1 onion powder
1 tsp. of cumin
1 packet of Lipton’s beefy mushroom (dry) mix
1 32 oz. can beef stock
1/2 oil Canola Oil



(Y’all know how to make rice… so here’s a pretty picture!)



Combine flour and all the seasoning except for Lipton mix into a mixing bowl.
Coat beef in flour mixture.
Place oil into a Dutch Oven. Heat oil. Brown the meat in batches. Don’t over-crowd the meat.
Set meat aside.
In same pot, add another 1/4 cup of oil and sauté onions and mushrooms.
Sprinkle Lipton packet over everything and stir together.
Pour in stock. Add meat back in. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Mixture should thicken on its own, if you want it thicker, add a little corn starch slurry.

Serve over rice.

Can you use stew meat with the bone-in?

Karen Ekstrom May 28, 2016 - 9:13 am

Hi Sharyl, I talked to Robert Spears. He said he wouldn’t use stew meat with the bone in. He would trim the meat off the bone first. (You can use any cut of beef, it doesn’t have to be ‘stew meat,’ just cut the beef into cubes.) Why? Because it “typically takes longer to cook with the bone in.” But, if you want to try it with the bone-in, Robert suggested that you use a crockpot so you can slow cook it. Good luck!

How much flour? It doesn’t have a measurement beside it.

Karen Ekstrom July 24, 2018 - 3:04 pm

Yikes! Thanks for catching that. It’s tablespoons – 1 1/2 tablespoons of flour. Enjoy. This recipe is fabulous!!!

Denise November 26, 2018 - 11:17 pm

Your recipe claims 1.5 tsp. flour and in your response you said 1.5 tablespoons flour????

Karen Ekstrom November 27, 2018 - 2:17 pm

Hi Denise, It’s 1.5 tsp!!!

This was very good!

Hello! I’m going home for lunch to make this for dinner tonight, but I’m wondering if I could put it in a crockpot after I brown the meat and saute the vegetables? Let me know what you think and how I should do it. Thanks! Looks yummy!

Karen Ekstrom November 27, 2018 - 2:14 pm

Sure. I wouldn’t sauté the vegetables. Just put them in the bottom of the crockpot with the beef, and everything else on top. Cook for 8 – 10 hours. It should be wonderful. Let me know how it turns out! (FYI… Cook the rice separately.)

I would like to say I prepared this recipe for my family, and they truly enjoyed it. It turned out good. Even my rice was yummy. I wanted to let you know, and say thank you for sharing it.

Thank you for telling me! I’m delighted and flattered!

I have such a hard time finding the beefy mushroom mix. Do you think the beefy onion work?

Karen Ekstrom March 30, 2021 - 12:11 pm

Sure. I hadn’t realize Beefy Mushroom Mix had become so hard to find. I even tried Amazon. And nope. It wasn’t there.
